A few months ago, Pakistani seamer Mohammad Amir was struggling to even get a visa to play in the Test series in England and now news have arrived that the left-arm pacer is all set to ply his trade in the county championship for the next season.

According to reports in the Dailymail, quite a few teams are contemplating the idea of signing one of the most exciting pacers in the world. The daily reported that Essex is one of the few clubs who are in the mix to pen a deal with the bowler.

Amir made his return to Test cricket for Pakistan at Lord’s in July, following a five-year ban for his part in the no-ball scandal of 2010, and is keen to continue his rehabilitation with a stint in the English domestic game. A lot was expected from him but so far his performance have been lukewarm. Amir has taken 10 wickets at an average of 36 in the first three Tests. But the fact that 5 of those scalps were of English openers Alex Hales and Alastair Cook will motivate him. He has also been the most economical bowler for the visitors.

In favourable conditions, Amir has failed to hit the ground running and so he would be desperate to get back to his usual best with a stint in the county championship during the next summer.

Coming to the series, the four-match Test series is currently led by the hosts. After losing the first Test by 75-runs, England made a remarkable comeback to win in the next two Tests and take an unassailable lead of 2-1. While they thumped Pakistan by an innings and 92 runs in the second Test, a dramatic collapse from the visitors saw them winning the penultimate match by 141 runs. The final match will be played at The Oval from next week.
